Professor Christopher French, Goldsmiths, University of London
'Hughes provides a timely and comprehensive reminder of the critical role of science in both academic and professional applications of psychology. It covers an impressive breadth of topics with incisive clarity and illustrates clearly the integral role of scientific approaches to understanding psychological phenomena.'
Dr David Hevey, Trinity College Dublin

Hughes is clear; "psychology is not a pseudo science", yet he is not afraid to point out "some very prominent areas of psychology have drifted disturbingly close to the demarcation boundary" and "There are certainly very many psychologists whose scientific literacy is sorely lacking and who take approaches that for all intents and purposes are pseudoscientific."
Hughes explains why pseudoscience is so popular; "it is more in tune with how people think in everyday life", and outlines the differences between science and pseudoscience in a very clear manner which leaves the reader well equipped to identify both.
"In science, famous figures who get things wrong are likely to be caught out eventually. With Pseudoscience....the views of guru figures are held to be meritorious even in the face of the most extreme criticism and counterevidence."
He de-constructs the arguments used against psychology being a science, in a methodical manner, without ignoring psychology's "slipperiness of research designs and analytical approaches that arise in a world where replication is frowned upon rather than encouraged."
Ultimately, why should we care ? Because "Pseudoscience doesn't just coexist with science, it serves to undermine it"
Psychology is in a crises. It needs a lot more people like Brian Hughes, willing to speak out against the pseudoscientists who have invaded the scientific field of psychology.
